Muna Zaki refuses to wear contact lenses
Egyptian actress Muna Zaki has refused to wear contact lenses for her role in the new film “Aswar Al Qamar” (Rings of the Moon). In the film Muna plays the role of a blind woman, a part she considers very challenging and different from any she has played in the past.
Muna said that she has attempted to branch out of the common character roles she is accustomed to playing in order to portray the role of this blind woman. She added that the character is not blind from the beginning of the film, but rather has a tragic accident that takes her eyesight.
Muna said she does not fear being compared to Egyptian actress Mina Shalabi, who also played the role of a blind woman in the film “Nour Ayni” (Light of my Eyes) , stating that the two roles are completely different from each other and so are the storylines of the two films.
The film “Aswar Al Qamar” stars actors Aser Yasin and Amro Saed and is directed by Tareq Al Arian. It was written by Mohammad Hafzi.
